Flanked by the magnificent hills of Gatineau Park and the Gatineau River, the municipality of La Pêche, north of Gatineau, is a true paradise for leisure seekers and vacationers. It’s a popular year-round destination for many activities, including horseback riding, golf, camping, canoeing, kayaking, skiing and snowmobiling. Among the several towns and municipalities that were merged to create La Pêche is the historic village of Wakefield, with its unique character and laid back way of life. La Pêche is the site of several annual festivals and cultural events, as well as an aquatic maze stretching over 6 km. A wide variety of regional agri-food products to sample add to the municipality’s charm and warmth.
